2010 Rockwood UL 2304s soft spot around shower drain

Most of the shower seems very sturdy but near the drain it seems soft as if unsupported. Based on the condition of the shower it doesn't look like previous owner used the shower much - well didn't use the whole trailer much.
So I'm wondering if this is an issue where perhaps a support under the shower has come loose. And if so, where exactly is a place to access the supports? I'm also not real thrilled that the heat duct comes out from under the shower stall - thus I think they probably have done some funky stuff with support under the stall.
Thoughts, comments and suggestions please!

I have the same characteristic on my 2016 Flagstaff 27 VRL. garden shower. Mine has an access panel on the exterior , under the door. Upon inspection , I see that there is no support under the floor pan in the area adjacent to the drain. I put in blocks of expanded polyethylene foam and that did make it better, but, I think the better choice would be blocks of polystyrene foam (hard foam vs squishy foam)

The showers are mostly supported with wood built up and then sheets of foam between the wood and tub. On mine there are only 3 supports and a bit of "squishyness" near the drain too. You can add in another support easily by doing what the factory does and add a block of wood with a piece of foam.

Thanks I will poke around some more to see if there is any access under the shower door.

Yep I did find that thread, more so I really needed help with finding out how to access under the shower.

Seems like I need to buy some stock in the wood block manufacturing sector - wood blocks for showers and tongue jacks...oh yeah could use those for campfire too.
